>> As I can't put the code right now, I'll try to give you some details :
>> Project Name : XenOrchestra
>> Licence : GPL 3 ? (or 2 don't know the real differences)
>> Small FAQ ;)
>> -> What is the goal of Xen Orchestra ?
>> Provide a simple and clear interface to Xen, across the Xen API with a
>> **open source** app. Because I love open-source, I would like to stay
>> in this philosophy ;)
>> -> What can I do with the first release ?
>> The first release will be an alpha, but you can know *where* are you
>> DomU and more :
>> - start/stop/pause/remove a domU (as you can see in the first screenshot)
>> - make live migrations on other dom0 ;
>> - have informations about a domU : cpu,ram,network etc.
>> -> When it's released ?
>> I'll try to give you the alpha version ASAP, so.. let's say next
>> Sunday (sept. 13). I need to make an installer and "purge" the code to
>> offer you a "clear" version.
>> -> The future ?
>> First, create xen-orchestra.com
with a FAQ (this one :D), what is the
>> project, a forum and a git server in order to create a community. I
>> start now !
>> Then, make a Debian Package :D
>> Next, I would like to implement "setters" (change cpu/ram/network
>> conf) : not really hard. And finally, use this interface to create
>> domU and templates...
>> See you soon, hope my project can help people to stay with open source Xen
> Don't forget to make the entire thing accessible to users (not just root)
> with somewhat granular access control
> otherwise you spent all this time to recreate the exact same thing that
> everyone else has written.
> When will we be able to look at your code? I use xen and VMs for my classes
> and I start in a few weeks. Like everyone else that needs
> non-root administration to domUs I'm writing my own interface. I need a user
> named bob to have control over bob's vm and no other.
